  •  Finally back! (6+ / 0-)

    It was out for nearly 5 hours, dagnabbit!  I did get some yard chores done, at least.

    I'm off to take care of a few errands now.  Not much time till I travel - Thursday - and much to do in the meantime.  MUST get to bed early tonight, because as a poll worker tomorrow's gonna be a long, long day.  Gotta be there by 6am, and not likely released to go home till 8pm.

    I still gotta find out where the gathering place is for the campaign.  If it's like last time, it'll be the biggest sports bar in town, but I need to check.

    Went door-to-door on the rez yesterday.  One guy, in a very out-of-the-way corner, came to the door with a big "Huh?!?!?!?!" on his face.  But when he saw the door hanger and I asked if he voted yet, he got all friendly - "Yup, we voted already."  Good news, because it was a home with an elderly grandmother, and we'd been told to let her know that the person who'd been supposed to get an absentee ballot had failed.  Some such.  That was OK.

    Another younger grandfather, 50 or so, smiled to tell us he'd just registered recently, and was voting for the first time on Election Day at the tribal Community Center.  That was nice, though you'd hope he'd have gotten to it sooner.  But still, better late than never.

    Unfortunately, there's a cohort of young adults who've decided they're against voting.  Young enough that this would have been their first election.  Ain't gonna listen to mama on that point.  Must be someone who'd convince 'em it's cool, but it hasn't happened yet.
